Comment Police

It has been brought to my attention that many people have gotten an error message while attemtping to leave messages here at treppenwitz. The message tells them that their computer and/or ISP have been identified as potential SPAM threats.

Nice.

Call the Comment Police!!!

Here's what you do if you get one of these messages:

1. Scroll down to tthe bottom of the message form and you'll see a picture containing a word. Type that word into the space below the picture. This shows the Comment Police that you are a person and not a malicious computer. Now you can submit your comment.

2. Call or write your ISP and give them hell for being so lame as to leave their servers open to be used by comment spammers!

Sorry folks... nothing to see here... the show's over... move it along...

Shabbat Shalom

I may have been lucky, then. No fingerprint to deliver.
I have heard that certain ISPs actually don't care enough whether they're hosts to spammers or not. After all, these bring traffic [=$$]. In fact...I never received a proper follow-up from Bezeq, e.g., when I complained about the daily zillion spam | virus | scam emails. Likewise, an Indian ISP is said to even protect known spammers. So maybe it's time for... Spam National Guards?

Shabbat Shalom!
